What is HungerTech?

HungerTech is a month-long technology challenge looking to use mobile-first technology to improve access to nutrition for people using the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Running throughout the month of June 2022, the HungerTech Challenge will help entrepreneurs, students, technologists and existing companies ideate and iterate toward a minimum viable product that can be launched in a pilot with the State of Indiana. Participants will receive access to AgriNovus research data, connections to subject matter experts and mentors, as well as one-on-one coaching to develop their idea.

HungerTech Challenge Overview

Food insecurity impacts 11% of the United States population and 13% of Hoosiers. Moreover, 22% of Indiana residents live in food deserts with low access to healthy nutrition. Using technology, education and existing programs, HungerTech will enable eligible recipients to use SNAP benefits via any device to purchase and receive groceries to a location of their choice, while also improving access to support resources for SNAP recipients. A winning solution will:

1

Leverage technology to improve access to nutrition, simplify online transactions and unlock free delivery for food insecure neighbors while also increasing adoption of online ordering.

2

Build a scalable mobile-first solution that could be replicated nationally with a path to profitability.
